The essence of freedom is that each of us shares in the shaping of his own destiny.什么是自由的精髓,那就是共同努力塑造未来。Until he has been part of a cause larger than himself, no man is truly whole.在这项伟大事业中,没有人是完整的。The way to fulfillment is in the use of our talents; we achieve nobility in the spirit that inspires that use.实现这些需要我们的才能与智慧,通过它获得辉煌成功。As we measure what can be done, we shall promise only what we know we can produce, but as we chart our goals we shall be lifted by our dreams.当我们估量能够做什么时,我们只应许诺能做到的事。但在制订目标时,却要有远大的理想。No man can be fully free while his neighbor is not. To go forward at all is to go forward together.如果你的邻舍没有自由,你就不会得到完全的自由。只有共同前进才能前进。This means black and white together, as one nation, not two.这就是说黑人和白人共有一个国家,不是分为两个。The laws have caught up with our conscience. What remains is to give life to what is in the law:法律是按照我们的良心制订的。剩下的问题就是赋予法律条文以生命:to ensure at last that as all are born equal in dignity before God, all are born equal in dignity before man.保既然一切人在上帝面前生来就有同等的尊严,在人的面前也应有同等的尊严。As we learn to go forward together at home, let us also seek to go forward together with all mankind.我们在国内要学会团结所有人共同前进,让我们也努力求得全人类的共同前进吧。Let us take as our goal: where peace is unknown, make it welcome; where peace is fragile, make it strong; where peace is temporary, make it permanent.让我们实现这一目标,在那些不知道什么叫和平的地方,要使和平成为受人欢迎的东西;在那些和平脆弱的地方,要使它牢固起来;在那些和平只是暂时存在的地方,要使它成为永久的东西.After a period of confrontation, we are entering an era of negotiation.经过一段对抗时期,我们正进入一个谈判时代。Let all nations know that during this administration our lines of communication will be open.让所有国家都知道,在本届政府任期内,交流通道是敞开的。We seek an open world--open to ideas, open to the exchange of goods and people--a world in which no people, great or small, will live in angry isolation.我们谋求一个开放的世界——对各种思想开放,对物资和人员的交流开放,在这个世界中,任何民族,不论大小,都不会生活在怏怏不乐的孤立之中。We cannot expect to make everyone our friend, but we can try to make no one our enemy.我们不能指望每个人都成为我们的朋友,可是我们能设法使任何人都不与我们为敌。Those who would be our adversaries, we invite to a peaceful competition--not in conquering territory or extending dominion, but in enriching the life of man.我们邀请那些很可能是我们对手的人进行一场和平竞赛——不是要征领土或扩展版图,而是要丰富人类的生活。As we explore the reaches of space, let us go to the new worlds together--not as new worlds to be conquered, but as a new adventure to be shared.在探索宇宙空间的时候,让我们一起走向新的世界——不是走向被征的新世界,而是共同进行一次新的探险。With those who are willing to join, let us cooperate to reduce the burden of arms, to strengthen the structure of peace, to lift up the poor and the hungry.让我们同那些愿意加入这一行列的人共同合作,减少军备负担,加固和平大厦,提高贫穷挨饿的人们的生活水平。02/437816。

  • [Nextpage视频演讲]President Obama signs into law measures that hold government accountable for responsible use of taxpayer dollars and cut down on waste, fraud and abuseDownload mp4 (110MB) | mp3 (10MB) [Nextpage文本]THE PRESIDENT: Good morning, everybody. Thank you, thank you. Everybody please have a seat. Welcome to the White House. I am pleased that you could all join us today as I sign this bill -- the Improper Payments Elimination and Recovery Act –- which, translated into English, means cutting down on waste, fraud and abuse, and ensuring that our government serves as a responsible steward for the tax dollars of the American people. This is a responsibility we’ve been working to fulfill from the very beginning of this administration. Back when I first started campaigning for office, I said I wanted to change the way Washington works so that it works for the American people. I meant making government more open and more transparent and more responsive to the needs of the people. I meant getting rid of the waste and inefficiencies that squander the people’s hard-earned money. And I meant finally revamping the systems that undermine our efficiency and threaten our security and fail to serve the interests of the American people. Now, there are outstanding public servants doing essential work throughout our government. But too often, their best efforts are thwarted by outdated technologies and outmoded ways of doing business. That needs to change. We have to challenge a status quo that accepts billions of dollars in waste as the cost of doing business and enables obsolete or under-performing programs to survive year after year, simply because that’s the way things have always been done. This isn’t just about lines on a spsheet or numbers in a budget, because when we fail to spend people’s tax dollars wisely, that’s money that we’re not investing in better schools for our kids, or tax relief for families, or innovation to create new industries and new jobs. When government doesn’t work like it should, it has a real effect on people’s lives -– on small business owners who need loans, on young people who want to go to college, on the men and women who’ve served this country and are trying to get the benefits that they’ve earned. And when we continue to spend as if deficits don’t matter, that means our kids and our grandkids may wind up saddled with debts that they’ll never be able to repay. And the reality is that right now, in these difficult economic times, families across this country are cutting every frill and stretching every dollar as far as they can -– and they should expect no less from their government. If folks can book a flight or buy a pair of shoes online with the click of a button, there’s no reason they should have to fill out duplicative forms or endure endless red tape and delays when they deal with their government. So that’s why one of the first things we did when we arrived in Washington was to undertake an Accountable Government Initiative –- an effort that spans every agency, department and office in our government. We named our first ever Chief Performance Officer, Jeffrey Zients, and we’re bringing to bear every tool at our disposal –- a combination of 21st century technology and old-fashioned common sense –- to ensure that our government operates as efficiently as possible and provides the highest quality of service to its customers, the American people. We began by combining -- by going through the budget line by line and proposing billion worth of cuts each year by targeting programs that are wasteful, duplicative or, in some cases, just plain ridiculous, like the million we’re spending for a radio navigation system for ships. Since we now have this thing called GPS, we don’t need it. Or the million that was spent on consultants to create seals and logos for the Department of Homeland Security. Their logos and seals are fine. (Laughter.) Or the billions of dollars slated to be spent on a fancy new presidential helicopter fleet that I didn’t want and didn’t need because Marine One is also fine. We’ve drafted a budget for next year that freezes all discretionary government spending outside of national security for three years, a budget, by the way, that would reduce this spending -- non-defense discretionary spending -- to its lowest level as a share of the economy in 50 years. This isn’t talked about a lot so I’m going to repeat it. Our budget would take non-security defense -- or non-defense spending to its lowest level since JFK -- lowest level as a percentage of the economy since JFK. We’ve gone after wasteful government contracting with a vengeance, working to put an end to unnecessary no-bid contracts and dramatically reinforcing the way government contracts are awarded. And we’re now on track to reach our goal of saving billion by the end of the next fiscal year. We’re working to sell or lease out thousands of federal buildings which we no longer need and aren’t using, saving another billion. We froze salaries for senior White House staff -- hence the glum faces. (Laughter.) And we’ve asked Congress for additional authority so that working together, we can move quickly to cut wasteful spending proposals before the money goes out the door. We’ve streamlined those college loan forms, eliminating nearly two dozen unnecessary questions. We’re creating a single electronic medical record for our men and women in uniform that will follow them from the day they enlist until the day that they are laid to rest. We’re revamping our Social Security and citizenship processes so that folks can book appointments and check the status of their applications online. We’ve created mobile apps that provide everything from disaster assistance to product safety information to the latest wait times for security lines at your local airport. And we’ve begun an unprecedented effort to put an end to a problem known as improper payments, which is the purpose of the bill that I’m signing into law today. Now, these are payments sent by the government to the wrong person, or for the wrong reasons, or in the wrong amount. Payments to a defense contractor that’s been disbarred for shoddy work but somehow managed to get through the system. Payments to companies that haven’t paid their taxes, or to folks who are incarcerated –- or who are dead. Sometimes these payments are the result of innocent mistakes or reflect valid claims that were paid at the wrong time. But sometimes, they result from abuses by scam artists and crooked companies. And all told, they added up to 0 billion. I want everybody to understand -- just get some perspective on that. That is more than the budgets of the Department of Education and the Small Business Administration combined. And that’s unacceptable. That’s why, earlier this year, I directed our federal agencies to launch rigorous audits conducted by auditors who are paid based on how many abuses or errors they uncover -– the more they find, the more money they make. So they are highly incentivized. We’re also creating a “Do Not Pay” list –- a consolidated database of every individual and company that’s ineligible for federal payments. Before checks are mailed, agencies will be required to check this list to make sure that the payment is to the right person, in the right amount, for the right reason. With these new tools, the challenge I’m making to my team today is to reduce improper payments by billion between now and 2012. This goal is fully achievable due in no small part to some of the great work of the members of Congress standing with me today, particularly Senator Tom Carper and Representative Patrick Murphy, who sponsored the bill I’m about to sign and worked with all the other members of Congress who are here today to get it passed. And I think, by the way, it’s worth noting that this bill passed unanimously in both the House and the Senate -– a powerful reminder of what we can accomplish when we put partisanship aside and do what’s best for the people we serve. So this bill will dramatically expand and intensify our efforts to end improper payments. And going forward, every agency in our government will be required to conduct annual assessments to determine which of their programs are at risk of making improper payments. Agencies will be required to audit more of their programs and recapture more taxpayer dollars. And we now have rigorous enforcement mechanisms to hold agencies accountable for how much money they save. So, in large part, thanks to the great work of the people in this room, I think we’re headed in the right direction. And today, I’m pleased to announce that I will be charging Jack Lew, my choice for director of Office of Management and Budget -- once Peter Orszag, the current OMB director, departs -- with building on the good work that Peter began. I’m entrusting Jack with carrying forward our Accountable Government Initiative in the months ahead. I will be asking him and Jeff to give me regular updates on our progress in cutting waste and making our government more efficient and effective. And as the only OMB director in history to preside over a budget surplus for three consecutive years, Jack Lew knows a thing or two about making government work. I’m confident he’s up to the challenge of building the kind of government that the American people expect and deserve -– one that spends their money wisely, serves their interests well, and is fully worthy of their trust and respect. So I want to again thank these outstanding members of Congress who are here today who have been on the case in both chambers for quite some time. I want to thank all the people who worked on this bill in this room for your outstanding efforts. Thank you. God bless you. God bless America. And let me sign this bill. (Applause.) (The bill is signed.) (Applause.) END 11:39 A.M.

Kennedy)执政时期以来的最低水平。奥巴马称,“如果我们继续大手花钱,仿佛赤字不是问题,那么我们的子孙后代最终可能要被迫承担他们永远无法还清的债务。”他还谈到,“现实是,在当前的经济困难时期,每个家庭都在节省开,尽可能使每一块钱发挥最大价值,他们期望政府的努力不会比他们少。” (本段文字来源:财讯网)201007/109646。
  • 演讲文本US President Bush's radio address on Athens 2004 Listen to the story:THE PRESIDENT:Good morning. This past week, the Games of the 28th Olympiad began in Athens. Athletes from more than 200 nations gathered at the opening ceremony to watch the lighting of the Olympic torch, and to begin two weeks of world-class competition. America is proud of our Olympians. The talented men and women of Team USA represent almost every state and every background, and range from 15 to 52 years of age. They are carrying on our nation's proud Olympic tradition, which extends back to the first modern games, held in Athens in 1896. In the coming days, more than 500 American athletes will compete in some 28 sports. In stadiums around Athens, and in living rooms here at home, millions of fans will cheer for Team USA. We will watch as our athletes set new records and create lasting memories, from the track to the pool to the gymnastics floor. And we will all be proud to see the stars and stripes rise when our fellow Americans win medals. Success in the Olympics is not defined on the medal stand, alone. For our athletes, a place on America's team is the culmination of years spent training and competing. They are proving that persistence and teamwork can help meet high goals. They are performing with honor, conducting themselves with humility, and serving as ambassadors of peace and goodwill to the entire world. By showing respect for every competitor, they are showing America's respect for the world, and they are inspiring us all. In Greece, the Olympics are returning to their ancient birthplace, and also the birthplace of democracy. These games arrive at a challenging hour for the world -- yet we have cause for great hope. At the opening ceremony, Team USA marched alongside men and women from Afghanistan and Iraq, nations that four years ago knew only tyranny and repression. Today, because the world acted with courage and moral clarity, those nations are free, and their athletes are competing in the Olympic Games. The rise of freedom in Afghanistan and Iraq is transforming life in those nations, and its effect will sp far beyond their borders. For the first time in history, people everywhere will see women competitors wearing the uniform of Afghanistan. For the first time in decades, the world will see Iraqi Olympians free from the brutal punishment of the dictator's son. Twenty-nine athletes from Iraq are competing in Athens, including the Iraqi soccer team, which thrilled the world by winning its first game. One woman on the Iraqi track team described her outlook this way: Someone who represents only herself has accomplished nothing; I want to represent my country. That same spirit motivates athletes from nations around the world. By coming together in friendly competition, all Olympians are sending the message that freedom and hope are more powerful than terror and despair. As we watch our athletes compete in Athens, we also think about the many Americans deployed overseas to defend our nation. In Iraq, Afghanistan and beyond, our men and women in uniform are serving with great skill and compassion. They are making America more secure, and America is grateful to all of them, and to their families. I look forward to following the Olympics over the next two weeks. I congratulate the coaches and athletes and families of Team USA, and also the brave Paralympic athletes preparing to compete in Athens next month. I wish them all good luck in the games. Thank you for listening. 200603/5016。
